A few nights ago, a customer and long time friends of my wife and I treated us to a double date of the the Long Center presents Georgia On My Mind: A Celebration of Ray Charles and His Music.

The night was a walk down memory lane of Ray Charles’ catalogue of greatest hits performed by highly esteemed, award-winning artists and musicians — Clint Holmes, Nnenna Freelon, Tom Scott and Take 6.

Each month I’m amazed to discover a small, but growing number of Austin-based companies branding domains using new top-level extensions — the good, bad, and ugly.

Rummaging through the last 6 editions of the Community Impact Newsletter (CIN )for Northwest Austin, I’ve discovered breweries, pet shops, fitness brands, summer camps, and entertainment venues among the early adopters.

While the 100+ degree temperatures here in Texas says otherwise, summer is nearing an end as kids head back to school.

The House of Brown certainly had a jam packed summer of trips to the Typhoon Texas, Fort Worth Zoo, Disney World in Florida, and Asheville, North Carolina.

In between all the fun and memories made, I managed to capture a few interesting domain names being used, especially domain names used by churches.

While driving to a wedding and admiring the beautiful and scenic views of the Texas Hill Country not far from the hustle and bustle of Interstate 35, an unusual billboard promoting a .live domain caught my eye.

I often encounter dozens of billboards traveling, whether for personal or business, throughout central Texas.

However, the billboard I encountered this day caught my eye because of how low it was to the ground, right at eye level, made of wood and not the normal big-box steel used by the bigger outdoor advertising firms.

By now you should know I frequent Rudy’s weekly to experience the greatest Texas cuisine a gas station can offer: breakfast tacos.

And while I’m often in a mad dash to taste and partake of bacon, egg, and cheese, or potato, egg, and cheese tacos, I can’t help but to get sidetracked by Rudy’s Bulletin Board. ?

As I scanned the board to discover any unique domains to write about, this given day in January my scanning was rewarded to find a band debuting its new album via a .BAND domain.

While grabbing a bite to eat with a partner, catching up on business and personal updates, yesterday, I stumbled upon an interesting domain sighting for an Austin-based organization dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding new music since 2001.

This renown non-profit organization’s, New Music Co-op, poster likely wouldn’t have caught my eye as not much stuck out about it to me except for their domain using the .coop extension.

For real, I thought their poster was a a domain typo, having not known .coop is a bonafide domain extension. ?
